She is originally from the Pacific Northwest where she received a master’s degree in materials engineering at the University of Washington.

Her areas of interest include Urban Underserved Populations, Spirituality and Whole-Person Care, Full-Spectrum Medicine, and Women’s Health.
While in medical school, Dr. Chin served on the executive board of the Christian Fellowship and Family Medicine Interest Group, and mentored medical students at student-run free clinics in the Chicagoland area. Also while in medical school, Dr. Chin lived in and served the North Philadelphia inner city by providing free door-to-door health screenings through the Summer Medical Institute.
She is a Seattleite and enjoys the outdoors, birding, and hiking. As a Chicagoan, she enjoys many sights and museums Chicago has to offer. She spends her time with family, friends, or at church. Like her mother, she loves drawing and painting with her mother in her free time.
